Woke up with full josh to celebrate but my maid sensed my happiness and decided to take off. There started my pongal with cleaning a sink full of vessels.
Managed to prepare ven pongal, chakkara pongal and coconut thovaiyal by 10 a.m. after cleaning the vessels and house. Didn’t have patience to read full aditya hridhayam so read the navagraha stotram for Suryan and Bingo repeated after me.
I so missed my family. For me, pongal is something to be celebrated for 3 days with house full of relatives.
I did my usual routine which i do for any festival. Rangoli-flowers-food.
Breakfast – ven pongal, chakkara pongal and thovaiyal
Lunch – same as breakfast plus sambar and vadai
Dinner – same as lunch plus boli
